The Canyon, a new multiplayer map for Killzone: Shadow Fall, is now available for free, Sony Computer Entertainment announced. Situated deep within one of the Petrusite fissures scarring planet Helghan, The Canyon is all that remains of the once-stately palatial quarters in the city of Pyrrhus. This map includes plenty of tight spaces for tense close-quarters combat, as well as more open areas that require quick thinking and sharp shooting. Players preferring a stealthy approach will want to use the narrow routes on the extremes of the map.
Unique amongst all existing maps for Killzone Shadow Fall, The Canyon also introduces a new gameplay element to the multiplayer mix: gravity wells. Consisting of anomalous spaces where the planet's gravity field is severely distorted, these wells allow players to 'fall' upwards to quickly reach different areas.
